Disclaimer- car buying is always a painful thing for me. I've had bad experiences where I leave a dealership with the car I've been pushed into but didn't want or just leaving with a horrible feeling of being had. That being said, I'm not the most pleasant person to work with.
Jim Ellis has a series of dealerships laced on Peachtree Industrial Blvd...they may as well call it Jim Ellis Industrial Blvd! I was on the market for a vehicle so I figured I'd give this Hyundai dealership a go even though I knew I didn't want a Hyundai. I had the pleasure of meeting the most unsalesman like (you know what I mean here) salesman, Mr. Aaron Jackson. There was no fast pitch, no dancing around, no card tricks just a business man with great manners and tact. I figured that was his game!
We looked at a car I didn't love and when I expressed I didn't want it he gave me pros and then moved on when confirmed that wasn't the vehicle I wanted to buy. We perused the area and I saw the cutest Mini Cooper that legit said, "hey girl, check me out over here." It had me at hello.
I asked about that vehicle and while numbers were being worked... before options could be presented...I left. If it's a good deal today it's a good deal tomorrow. Aaron and I had a discussion and a few days later I was picking up my fully detailed, fully gassed Mini!!!
Meeting with Sam in finance made the process very clear to understand. I was presented with options but didn't have options forced on me. I felt both Aaron and Sam were listening to my concerns and allowing me to make decisions as opposed to the typical sales pitch of, "the bank says you have to have this WiFi connection package and oil change maintenance to purchase this vehicle." I felt respected and heard, and that's hard to say as a woman sometimes. It was a wonderful experience when I put my "I know you're trying to get me" guard down.
I'm driving the car that I love with the services that I selected and that makes this experience A-1! I went to a dealership and bought the car that I chose!! I love these guys! I even took a thumbs up picture next to my mini along with the wonderful Aaron Jackson when we closed the deal.
Thank you for the great experience Aaron and Sam! Please see Aaron, you'll be glad you did! I gotta go for a cruise so I can open the sunroof with my heated seats on...it's still cold out but I have a sunroof so I'm going to use it!
